Post subject: valve cover gasket failure.
Archived from groups: alt>autos>honda (more info?)

Well my accord has reached the 350 000 km, and the valve cover gasket
has failed, I went to Napa and Canadian tire. Napa was charging 57
dollars for a rubber gasket and Canadian tire was charging 52. I didn't
udnerstand, all it was was a piece of silicone. I figured Id try my one
last local place my mother told me of. and woila! 14.75 for the gasket
with the spark plug seals. Poor baby, I felt so bad driving her around
leaking oil, not very much but still. Anyways back to the subject, the
gasket is manufactured by a company called Beck/Arnley. Anyone had any
experience with their gaskets?

=================================

No, but I'm in Canada and I've got three Hondas on my driveway, so
saving a bundle is always a good idea.
